Patients aged 70 or 79 years may be eligible to receive a vaccination against shingles. As older people are more likely to get shingles, the new shingles immunisation programme has been introduced by the Department of Health to help protect those most at risk. For more information speak to your GP or nurse.

Patients intending to travel should please book an appointment at least two months before the date of departure to ensure good immunity.

Cervical Smear Tests
These are performed by our practice nurses by appointment. If you are a woman aged between 20-64, we strongly advise you to have regular cervical smears - three yearly between ages 25-50 and five yearly between 51-64. Cervical smear tests are intended to detect early changes that could lead to cancer of the cervix. Approximately 1000 women in the UK still die from cancer of the cervix each year. Early treatment can prevent these deaths. Regular cervical smears help us diagnose early problems that are easily treated and thus save lives. Please make an appointment with a practice nurse for a smear in the middle part of your menstrual cycle - ideally days 10-14.
